“This recipe originates from My Vegan Cookbook. One of my favs! Thank you my Vegan Cookbook for finally giving me a tasty AND healthy peanut butter cookie recipe :) This wholesome peanut butter cookie recipe trims the fat, calories and prep time. And the taste is divine! The only flour in this recipe is a 1/2 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour, but you would never guess. Don't get out a sauce pan, and you can forget about dragging out a mixer. All you need is a mixing bowl and a spoon! It's the perfect go to cookie recipe when you need a sweet fix and you're too tired to work for it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Then dump ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir. You will really need to work at getting the ingredients mixed well. I do a downward smashing motion with my spoon as I stir. You could even put your hands into the dough and kneed a little.
  3. Drop 1 Tablespoon size mounds onto a greased cookie sheet, about 1 ½ inches apart. Smash them down with a fork. Then sprinkle with course sugar if you like.
  4. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.
  5. After they are baked let them cool for 15 minutes before you dig into They will be soft out of the oven and crisp up as they cool.
